Pharma glass recalls series: Causes and preventative measures

The consequences of pharmaceutical product recalls can be huge. Not only is company reputation and profits at stake, but most importantly, deviating pharmaceuticals can cause patient harm and even death.

Session 1: Recall cause: Drug product and glass interaction

Session 2: Recall cause: Cracking/breakages

Session 3: Recall cause: non-conformance


What you will learn about:

  • How the issue can arise
  • Why it’s an issue
  • Related recall causes
  • Testing and analysis that can be carried out
  • Preventative measures
